    Roll up, roll up, completely free access to one poor sod's long list of strange Windows happenings!

    Basically, I re-installed Windows about a month ago. Since then, stuff's been going wrong.

    Take your pick:
    Random BSOD's
    Mouse & Keyboard freezes, requires restart
    Screen freeze
    Random screen "drops" (black screen for a few seconds, like Nvidia driver stopped and re-started)

    System Specs:
    128GB SSD
    1.5TB HDD + 2TB External HDD
    6GB DDR3 RAM
    MSI GTX 560Ti HAWK
    Nvidia Driver 285.62

    Latest BSOD crash report:

    One I had just under a month ago (would be just after the re-install I reckon)

    Things I have already tried:
    Memory test (passed, no errors)

    Those that dare to help... will receive great thanks and a free coffee

    Symptoms are VERY likely to be driver related. You don't specify manuf./self-build...If it is manuf. then go to downlaods and get latest drivers...if it is self-build you will have to do a lot of manual searching. This link might help

    Hey (I'm from Surrey too!)

    It's a self build (essentially, ordered it off a website that custom-built it out of parts for me, I've upgraded it a lot).

    I can't think of any hardware that's new that caused the problem befor emy Windows re-install. I've rolled back my Nvidia drivers to one that is apparently known to work (GTX 560's experience a lot of issues apparently) so I will see if it works. Done the RAM check, and I don't think I can disable the driver specified in the log file because its a key system file or something. If it still goes wrong despite these drivers I'll attempt a few more things they recommend.

    Thanks for your help.

    Watch out for any overclocking...'cos that often produces a false positive on drivers.

    Yup, I haven't over clocked (yet). Thought my GTX 560 HAWK is factory OC'd to 950Mhz..
